A loan of $2,000 helped to purchase silver and natural gemstones for his jewelry.


Francisco's story

Francisco specializes in handcrafted sterling silver jewelry. He would like to purchase silver and natural gemstones.

Francisco has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"I am the second generation of jewelers in my family, and now my daughters have also chosen this vocation. My designs are inspired by pre-Hispanic codices and the folklore of my country that I love so much. I sign my work as 'Citlali', meaning 'Star' in the Nahuatl language, so everyone wearing my designs has a star to keep them company."

"Receiving this loan is very important to us, and we really appreciate it. It allows us to continue doing what we love, and show our pieces to the whole world."
